I wonder if you're talking about the same thing I've been experiencing for a while.

When going from 1st to 2nd, sometimes it feels like when I push the clutch pedal down then shift out of 1st, the shifter feels like its popping out into 2nd on its own.
Yup i feel it too, Ive never felt that on any other manual transmission that I have driven before.....but when it happens it doesnt feel bad or grinding, it actually happens pretty smothly with minimal assistance from me shifting......hhhmmmm

I have a 2008 Sport Fit M/T. I have driven manual transmissions for nearly 20 years. I learned on a tractor that still has it's original transmission. At 6011 miles my clutch burned out to the point that it would not engage. The service consultant at the dealership said that he had never seen such a worn clutch. The dealership replaced the clutch disc, the flywheel, the pressure plate, and both bearings for free after they claimed I caused the wear... ridiculous. Now at 17,832 miles my clutch began to slip again. The dealership says it is me causing this wear. I do not ride the clutch, have never red-lined in this vehicle, and have never stalled this vehicle. I saw a report from their tech line that stated that they were "aware" of clutch disintegration problems. As far as I can tell... this car is a piece of junk. After the care I have received from Honda, their admittance that it was "unlikely" that I caused this damage, and statements such as we know this model has problems with the Master and Slave cylinders that cause premature wear... I will never buy another Honda. They admit that there are problems with this vehicle, but they do not take responsibility when it comes to repair. The clutch may not be covered under warranty, but the parts causing the premature wear are. Sorry for the long post. Anyone else having these issues?

Nope just you. Clutches do not wear like that on their own.

I still want a Fit, but I suppose some 3M clear paint protector stuff would be a worthy investment.
Well I hope it's the earlier fits that does all this. But yeah I would invest in 3M clear bra if you're worried, cause I'm trying to get mine done.
Might want to try "Clear Armor" - pricy but very good 3m product. I have it on one of my vehicles but not my Fit and do not know for sure if they make it for the Fit, but am sure if there are enough inquiries they will produce it.

March 2011 Safety Recall Notice: Honda has decided that a defect, which relatest to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2009 and 2010 model year Fit vehicles. There is a potential for one or more of the four spring assemblies on the engine's VTEC system to fail which may cause the engine to stall and prevent it from being restarted.
Just received this in the mail today.

Just had my 2008 FIT in for regular maintenance. I asked the tech to check the radio because the reception has been getting worse. He called back and said there is actually a bulletin out for this and is checking with the Mgr to see if it would be under warranty. Anybody have info or the number for this TSB?

DIY oil change

Don't knock me for this video. There are many who don't know how to change their own oil and I think it's sad. So I'm going to help them learn.

CHEAP DIY mods or bit of playing what can be done
(all mods just 1 of 5 stars difficulty)

1.) H emblem CF wrap
This stuff + hair dryer to heat the vinyl.












2.) RED bckgrnd




[b]3.) Viper delete[b]
All you need is Civic 95 Hatch rear hook delete.
Bit of sand paper, 3 layers of black for outdoors (all stuff is already in the paint).

5.) Steering wheel CF wrap

I've felt something like that on my '09 even when coasting then hitting gas (like slowing for turn then accelerating out). I call it the "turbo lag".

Hey guys,

I was wondering, does anyone know how to release child lock on all doors? I have a '10 Sport Model and it didn't come with an owners manual or any manual of any sort

Child locks on the rear doors can be made child proof or not by going to the open door and looking where the door lock mechanism is. The will be a small "switch" sticking out a bit below the lock mechanism that can be moved to lock or unlock position.

The front doors do not have child proof locks.

Thanks, I was also wondering about the auto unlock feature when I switch to ignition off

You can control all the windows from the master switch by the driver too.
